Be in the loop with Givenchy’s latest GV3 bag line
To set the tone for her debut showing at Givenchy, Clare Waight Keller studied its late founder, Hubert de Givenchy’s sketches. This connection to the brand’s history lent poignant meaning to Waight Kelle r’ s metamorphosis of the House, which was also felt in the first handbag line launched under her tenure. Named after Givenchy’s headquarters located on 3 Avenue George V, the GV3 range is both refined and practical.The bag’s most recognisable feature is the double G clasp, which adds a dash of vintage charm to its contemporary, accordion-style silhouette. This nanosized wonder is the range’s most interesting variant; it slides easily onto a belt and can be worn over immaculate coats, sophisticated dresses or cigarette pants for that lauded dose of Parisian chic.
